magsinva (1250) - Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle - pours clear tawny with a white head. This one definitely has the pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove flavors, but I wish the pumpkin was highlighted more.

DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle from liquor express. Pours brown with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Lots of spice notes on the nose. Getting the nutmeg and allspice on the tongue but not so much of pumpkin. A little dry on the tongue. Finished clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle pours an orange color with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg. Medium bodied, drinks like a pumpkin pie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Hop City Birmingham. Pours transparent orange with white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. Tastes of pumpkin pie. Notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and other pumpkin pie spices. Very sweet. Low carbonation. Move over Dogfish Head, because Straight to Ale has officially made my favorite pumpkin beer.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
22 ounce bottle - Sherlock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, orange-yellow body with a rip-roarin’, overflowing, all-foam head. As the bottle continues to slowly but steadily belch out a copious amount of suds. Talk about the Craft Beer Explosion!

Smell: Shaved pumpkin flesh, minutely vegetal with ground spices, faint caramel-glazed bready and a squirt of lemon juice.

Taste: Tangy pumpkin and bready malts with a light, fleeting sweetness giving rise to citrus as well as nutmeg and cinnamon spice. A light developing sourness ties it together nicely as the heavy sudsiness leads you to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Highly carbonated, with the effervescence never seeming to cease.

Overall: A bit of a pumpkin sour, likely something I would have expected out of Wicked Weed’s Funkatorium. I certainly don’t believe this is was intended by the brewers, but, like a free set of all-weather radials, it was a welcome surprise.

Travlr (24841) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle shared for Thanksgiving. Clear amber color, medium beige head. Aroma of typical spice and subtle citrus. Taste is very lightly tart and light to medium spice. Tasty enough, and a popular choice.

2.8
dfinney23 (3271) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Looked outstanding, with a tall frothy head over a clear orange base, but something soured this sample. Not to the point of being undrinkable but it was much more "pumpkin sour" than "pumpkin pie".

3.4
Cybercat (5836) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thick and fairly persistent ivory head. Malty aroma has a strong cinnamon overtone and a firm vegetable note. Yep - definitely pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, perfect from Samhain to New Years. Hell, perfect any time of year. Flavor is like liquid pumpkin pie, pumpkin plus cinnamon, as well as a malty undertone and a snip of cloves. Texture has average viscosity, but some good fizz. Any time is a good time for pumpkin beer!

2.4
DocJitsu (1979) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Pours an orange-yellow-golden color with a short-lived antique white head. Belgian yeast and outter orange peel nose. Full-bodied with carbonation scrub. Taste approximates the nose there is some pumpkin picked up in the flavor.

LeRoytheAlien (55) - Kennesaw, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Orange-colored, medium carbonation, balanced taste with little spice and nice pumpkin. Overall decent, but wildly over-priced, considering the abv.
